Gnome 2.32.1 released – Here’s looking to 3.x!

I’ve always loved the Gnome Desktop Environment – and it’s certainly loved by many others.

After its first release in 1999 it’s certainly come a long way.  I have flirted over the years with a few other DE’s (mostly light weight ones) though I always came back to the Gnome, maybe it’s because what I have chalked up the most time with it and therefore feel most at home.  One thing is for certain, I never liked KDE and the specs of my PC really never required me to look at a lighter DE out of a necessity.

So it’s now reported that version 2.32 has a bug update released (as of 18/11/10) and whilst preparing the way for version 3 which is alleged to be arriving in early 2011, its being suggested that 32.1 will be the last point release for Gnome 2 (Remember though, originally Gnome 3 was due out September 2010) however if we are to see Gnome 3 hitting its target date of March, then its certainly not an unreasonable statement.

Time will tell.
